Final Countdown!

Dear Friends,

As we count down the final hours, I would like to begin to thank all the institutions that supported the DELTA BOYS Kickstarter campaign: The Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program, The Tribeca Film Institute, Stranger Than Fiction, Rooftop Films, Vail Film Festival, Shooting People and a handful of others I am not even aware of.

Independent film-making is a challenging field, and support from organizations like these makes it feel a bit less "independent." We are, in fact, a community of filmmakers and film-lovers who work together to create a diverse array of independent projects covering topics ranging from art to war.

I am particularly grateful to all the individual members of this community who took the time to help spread the word about DELTA BOYS. Thanks to you, the campaign has surpassed its goal of $15,000.

The campaign ends at 10PM EST tonight.

Thank you!

      All the best,
